Body of OursBody of Ours is an exploration of pain, pride and the idea of self. Documenting himself performing with a sculpture resembling a physical manifestation of the artist, Ollie Hayward has produced a body of work over the course of five sequences (one being a video) that examine how each of us interact with the often-complex ideas we have of ourselves. The insecurities we keep hidden from the world akin to something dirty to the more admirable and acceptable traits we wear like an armour upon our bodies, this project looks at the sensory ways of being. The sculpture is both beautiful and grotesque. It is approachable yet starkly uncanny and altogether alien. It is, however, fundamentally human.
